Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Wrn Colorado
National Weather Service Grand Junction CO
300 PM MDT Tue Apr 25 2017

.DISCUSSION...
A very unsettled pattern will continue throughout the week as a
series of storms impact eastern Utah and western Colorado. This
will result in a continued cooling and wetting trend with numerous
showers and even a few thunderstorms. The persisting excessive
cloud cover will be enough to keep humidities above critical
fire weather thresholds.

...GUSTY ERRATIC WINDS CAN BE EXPECTED NEAR ANY SHOWERS
OR THUNDERSTORMS...
